There are over 1 million free books are available at the Internet Archive. In case you’re wondering what the internet archive is, here is a description of it from Wikipedia:

The Internet Archive (IA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to building and maintaining a free and openly accessible online digital library, including an archive of the World Wide Web. The Internet Archive was founded by Brewster Kahle in 1996.

Over 1 million of the Internet Archive books are available in the Kindle compatible MOBI format. Here are the libraries that are currently available and the number of books in those libraries:

To read the books on your Kindle you will need to download the Kindle for PC app. If you have not done this yet, you can go here to find out how: Kindle For PC App

Next go to the Texts portion of the Internet Archive. When you find a book that you would like to read click on it. Once you are at the detail page click on the “Kindle (beta)” format on the left hand side of the page. You can now download the book to your computer. You need to save it to your Kindle for PC App so that when you connect your Kindle to your computer you can then drag the book from your computer’s “My Kindle Content” folder to your Kindle’s “documents” folder.

You should now be able to read your free new book on you Kindle.
